Trace over the incorrect segment to edit, or use the eraser tool. • Turn off snap to roads (magnet icon) and zoom in to manually trace the map. (Try switching to a satellite layer).

  • Won’t draw where you’ve walked

    By Johnnierr
    Thought it would have drawn a trail to show where I have already walked. I would have paid extra for that because it’s what I need.
  • Easy Run Routes

    By Dark Cricket
    I love this APP. Super easy route recon at your fingertips. Great for planning the perfect run, ride, or just adventure.
  • Latest update decreases functionality

    By Pezcador
    I’ve had to get a new route map since your update is using poor maps. I can’t see the streets or structures I run by.
  • Great app, figure out routes quickly

    By Matts08
    This is amazing. The run mapping app I’ve been waiting for. If I’m trying to figure out a run to do on roads and want a basic idea of distance, I don’t have to spend 10 minutes using some online mapper hoping I don’t accidentally click on a business and have to hit undo a bunch. This takes about 30 seconds to figure out how long a route you may have in mind is. Great app!
  • Simply amazing

    By happymacaron
    Thank you!
  • New version a big plus!

    By cobaev
    I e been using this app for a long time. Though there are flashier ways of mapping and tracking courses- I love this app. New version (9/18) a big plus! Has a lot of small trails in some very small towns. Kudos to the developers!
  • No more foot paths

    By J. Earley
    The recent change in map provider for this app has lost the ability to route the small footpaths that google maps had. These paths provide all sorts of connections to parks and neighborhoods here. This app is no longer useful for planning routes around my area.
  • This app is incredible

    By Lewismw
    I use Footpath multiple times a week and couldn’t be more impressed. Most of my runs are on trails and my Garmin isn’t even close to as accurate as this app. The trail maps are remarkably extensive and I also use it find trails which don’t appear on Garmin, Google, or Strava. Most of my experience with this app is in Portland, Oregon but I use it when I travel and it’s worked great everywhere I’ve been. Overall the app is intuitive and easy to use. The drawing feature is super useful with snap to map on or off and everything loads really quickly. The maps are beautiful and the ability to store lots of routes made the elite version worth it for me. I’ll be using this app for a long time.
  • Hate the new changes

    By runnergirl 28
    The app was good, now they have updated and if you need to go over the same roads more than once it doesn’t accept it. Very frustrating when you’re trying to do a route that passes the same roads more than once.
  • Great app for runners

    By Devilish look
    Sometimes I like to just run. No GPS, no phone. Now I know exactly what my distance was without having to be connected to anything but nature...
